From September 12–14, 2017, the National Council for Measurement in Education (NCME) will host a conference on the confluence of classroom assessment and large-scale psychometrics and related disciplines. Historically, different assessment perspectives regarding classroom assessment have operated in isolation. The purpose of this conference is to bring together the many voices and perspectives of experts and practitioners of assessment in order to improve student learning.

The conference will feature a variety of sessions centered around topics ranging from accessibility and equity to various uses of assessment and approaches to data gathering, analysis, and reporting methods.

Getting around

The conference will be held at the Kansas Memorial Union (KS Union), on the fourth floor. Registration is on the fifth floor, and conference events are held on the fifth and sixth floors. Refer to this map of the KS Union.

Shuttle busses will run between conference hotels and the Union throughout the conference. Busses will also run between downtown Lawrence and conference hotels the evening of Wednesday, September 13. Refer to our bus schedule.
